Working in a Scrum team, you'll have first class communication and interpersonal skills as well as the technical ability to develop, improve and maintain that platform.

As a DevOps Engineer, you'll be working as part of the team to deliver new capability, enhancements and support day to day operations as they arise.

What do I need?

You should have a deep understanding of Microsoft Azure and demonstrable experience with that cloud environment. Ideally your experience should be from an Infrastructure as Code (IaC) perspective through the automated provisioning of resources and capability.

- Using Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates for automated deployments

- Automated provisioning of cloud resources, such as Database, Synapse, Data Factory, Databricks

- Advanced scripting skills (PowerShell).
